1885 TO 1972 

New Piasa Chautauqua — this year observing its eighty- 
sixth continuous season — started as a Methodist Camp Meet- 
ing Grounds in the summer of 1885. 

A printed circular issued under date of July 13, 1885, 
announced the first Camp Meeting of the Piasa Bluffs As- 
sembly to be held starting August 25, 1885, and continuing 
for one week. 

The circular declared: "The object of the Chautauqua 
Assembly is to maintain a summer resort for literary, scien- 
tific and religious instruction." 

That object has become the revered heritage of Chau- 
tauqua, each Season maintaining the standards adopted in 
that first year. This bulletin presents the 1972 eleven-week 
program which will start Saturday, June 10, and close Mon- 
day (Labor Day), September 4, 1972.

PRESIDENT'S COMMENTS 

During the past year there has been a renewed desire on the 
part of your Board of Directors to improve our Physical sur- 
rounding at Chautauqua. This feeling seems to be prevalent 
among m:st Chautauquans and we hope that it will be evident 
in the appearance of our surroundings throughout the year. 
Some people seem to feel that the word "Ecology" was just 
discovered. Perhaps the use cf the word is new, but I can 
recall when we had no cans or bottlev; scattered around our 
grounds and roads and every bit of stray paper was hand 
picked from the ground. Right now will you individually 
pledge with me to cease being a "Litter Bug". 

I personally respectfully suggest that each member of the 
family read these few sentences as w^ell as our Rules and 
Regulations and help to maintain the Chautauqua we all love. 
Let's improve ourselves physically and morally. Attend Church 
regularly. 

Yours for a happy summer. 




LYNN SCHLANSKER, 
President

r\uLeA and nCeauiationi Ljouernina L^nauiauaua 

Rules and Regulations governing daily living at Chautauqua are con- 
ceived in the interest of promoting public safety and making a pleasant 
and enjoyable stay for everyone possible. The cooperation of all persons 
in observing and obeying all By-Laws, Rules and Regulations of the 
Association at all times will be greatly appreciated. 

1. VEHICLES: (a) All automobiles must be brought to a full stop at 
the Gate House at entrance to the Chautauqua grounds upon entering 
or leaving. The Gatekeeper is required to determine that each person 
entei'ing the grounds is properly authorized for admission. 

b — The speed limit of all motor vehicles on the Chautauqua 
grounds is 15 miles per hour. All "Stop" signs must be obeyed. 

c — No one may operate a motor vehicle on the Chautauqua 
grounds who does not possess a Driver's License of the State in 
which he resides and who is not adequately covered by liability in- 
surance. All motor vehicles are required to have a state license.

If you expect guests, notify the gatekeeper in advance and make ar- 
rangements for their admission. Failure to make advance arrangements 
can cause embarrassment as the gatekeeper is not authorized to admit 
strangers to the grounds simply because they announce they have come 
to visit a Chautauqua resident. 

3. BUILDING: No building or additions shall be erected, nor repair 
work started except with consent of the Board of Directors, under a 
permit signed by the Secretary. No building or additions shall be done

trical stove, electric hot water heater, or any other electrical appliances 
that consume a large amovmt of current must obtain approval of the 
Board of Directors.

amine or inspect any cottage or place on the Grounds as to fire hazards,

NEW PIASA CHAUTAUQUA Fifteen 



Special rioted and (^ontmenid 



1. Chautauqua is what we each help to make it-bath in and out of the 
regular season. Let us all observe it's regulations, let us all partake 
of and support it's activities, and if we have special talents let us 
make them available to Chautauqua for it's benefit. 

2. Please read again the rules section of the Program Book. Pages 4-6. 

3. As Christians let us lead a Christian life; As Americans proud of our 
heritage to have a Chautauqua let us display the American flag. 

4. Please check your name, address, etc. If there are any omissions 
or corrections let the program committee know so they can be 
changed next year. 

5. For the benefit of new owners — The bell at the administration build- 
ing normally is sounded V2 hour before all events, and again at 
event time. The siren is blown at noon, 5:00 P.M., and in case of 
emergency. Religious and card party announcements, and movie 
reviews can be found on the bulletin boards in the vicinity of the 
Administration Building. 

6. Some special safety and courtesy regulations for your consideration: 

(a) Digging — There are underground telephone cables, gas, water, 
and sewer lines at Chautauqua. Please find the location of these 
before doing any digging. In the case of gas lines, these are made 
of plastic pipe and could easily be broken. There is a warning tape 
just below the ground at the gas line locations. IF YOU SHOULD 
DIG UP THIS WARNING TAPE DO NOT DIG ANY DEEPER! 

(b) Bluff Climbing — The Spring area is an enticing but dangerous 
place for the children. PLEASE RESTRAIN ANY CHILDREN 
FROM CLIMBING THE BLUFFS IN THIS AREA. It is very 
dangerous, but could also deface the beautiful improvements that 
have been made there. 

(c) Restraining Children — While Chautauqua is a place where chil- 
dren have freedom of the grounds, parents should restrain them 
from play activities during religious services, and also from annoy- 
ing activities at the movies. 

(d) Dances — This year we are inviting all Chautauquans from 9 to 90 
to attend all dances until the first intermission, at which time children 
under 13 years of age are requested to leave. This does not apply to 
the dance on Childrens Day. Everyone on the dance floor is expected 
to observe the posted regulations, and to conform to the following 
clothes requirements: Male — closed shirt collar (with or without tie) 
or turtle-neck shirt, trousers, and shirt tail to be worn under the
